The Conner High School Art Club consists of High School students who love the Arts! Many students were not able to get into the art class they requested and this is their outlet to continue to grow and learn.
The club meets Tuesday's after school on a regular basis to hold meetings.
The 2017-2018 school year we are focusing on student involvement. Students will be provided the opportunities to learn drawing/painting/sculpture techniques.
Check back weekly for club updates!
